Are Banksters & the Fed Becoming the Fourth Branch of Our Government?

When banksters create money faster than the economy grows, the purchasing power of the dollar naturally declines, which is known as inflation.   No wonder that each year Americans work harder, for less money (reduced purchasing power), than the year before.   It's all thanks to the Fed's clever racket and the criminally inflationary bankster policies that are behind this racket.  

How could we force the Federal Reserve banksters to compensate us for the recession they played a big role in causing?

 

As people like Ellen Brown, Dennis Kucinich, Ron Paul and Bill Still have been telling us (hereherehere, and here, respectively) for quite some time, we must get Congress to take over the Fed and merge it with the Treasury Department.   (A very tall order, I know, but there is no other solution except for, perhaps, the financial transaction tax described below, which would probably be equally difficult to implement.)

How else might we force the banksters, Wall Streeters, et.al. to pay us back the money they've stolen from us?

Answer:   By levying a transactions tax on every stock trade, derivatives trade, currency trade etc.  

Some would suggest that perhaps it's time to call the banksters and tell them we are taking our money back one way or another.   "Hey banksters we're going to send in the Marines to collect it."

Of course this is a joke, because people in league with the banksters and the Fed have much more control over what the US Marines do than do the common people of the USA.

As Major General Smedley Butler wrote:

"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers.   In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.   I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914.   I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in.   I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.   I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912.   I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916.   I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903.   In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.   Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints.   The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts.   I operated on three continents."

Goldman Sachs takeover and domination -- a global coup d'etat?

Recently the Bank of England named former Goldman Sachs investment banker Mark Carney as its new chief, thereby adding to the long list of former Goldman Sachs bankers who've seized positions of immense power all around Europe and the rest of the world.   As Europe descends into an austerity-induced (and therefore manufactured) economic crisis, Goldman Sachs is hereby making sure it gets all of its failed investments back.   As the British newspaper The Independent  reported   earlier this year, the bankster-technocrats steering fiscal policy in Greece, Germany, Italy, Belgium, France, and now the UK, all hail from Goldman Sachs.  

In fact, the head of the European Central Bank itself, Mario Draghi, was the former managing director of Goldman Sachs.   It's widely known that Goldman Sachs made the euro problem worse when it helped Greece hide its debt back in 2002.   As the DailyKos described the scheme Goldman is playing, "The normal scenario usually involves helping a nation hide a problem and sell its debt until the problem blows up into a bubble that bursts in a spectacular way.   Goldman Sachs then puts their 'man' into a position of power to direct the bailouts so that Goldman gets all its money back and more, while the nation's economy gets gutted simultaneously so as to get Goldman its money."

The same thing has happened in the United States, as the last two Treasury Secretaries came from Goldman Sachs, and Goldman made out like a bandit in the 2008 Wall Street bailouts.   Plain and simple, when a bank the size of Goldman (G-S) can run the world, as America's fourth and most powerful branch of government, American democracy is dying if not already dead.  

If all of the top officers of G-S were simultaneously executed or killed by a terrorist organization, G-S *might* reform, out of fear.   Otherwise, with no accountability of any kind, and with the top Capos expecting the public worship them instead of knee-capping them, G-S will continue to suck the life blood out of the global economy until there's nothing left.   Instead, Goldman's assets should simply be seized as the loot taken by a criminal enterprise, and the top officers arrested and held without bail under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), as terrorists.
